Throttle cable attachment brackets

Recommended Posts

Before I re-invent the wheel, I'll ask.  I'm putting a CH270 Kohler on my 857 to replace the trashed K engine.  It appears the throttle cable needs to enter at the right side rear of the engine, instead of at the front on the K.  I know there are a multitude of brackets that would make the job relatively simple.  BUT where would I find details and where to order them from.  If push comes to shove I'll fab something but I have a feeling a "factory" bracket would  be a lot less work and need less refining.

I know you all like photos so here are a couple.  The last one shows how I think the cable will eventually run, maybe?  Or will some kind of bell crank be the ticket?

I had that problem with a Briggs engine I installed in another brand of tractor. What I did was just mount it the way the engine dictated and now full throttle is in the idle position. Still runs good so to me it made no difference.

here is what I did.  I'll leave this as a reference for the future.  And I gave the bracket a coat of paint so it will look a little better on my new engine.

      Seeking guidance for tuning a CH18S Kohler Command (1995), as replacement for a 16hp Onan (1990). 
       
      This Kohler doesn't have the torque-grunt of this Onan, but it works, and is my available option. 
       
      So, how best to tune the Kohler for this application?
       
      1. I believe Onan and Kohler high RPM setting are both 3600?
       
      2. Would it hurt the Kohler to boost that RPM to 3700-3800?   Would it really help any?
       
      3. Would it hurt the Hydro Transmission to go over 3600rpm?
       
      4.  I guess I could go find a slightly smaller Drive Pulley?  And what would then happen to the Trans if I can't get the proper RPMs to the Trans?
       
      Now that I've figured out the mounting arrangements I can always swap in a bigger engine should I stumble upon a better option.
       
      Given the difficulties of getting the Onan rebuilt now-a-days, I'm looking to go for a more modern engine with easier to find parts/service.  And I'm not inclined to do an engine rebuild myself.
       
      Thanks,
      - L.
